- Lightly season the chicken tops with salt & pepper
- Layer the chicken with 1 piece Prosciutto, 1 sun-dried tomato, 1 basil leaf & 1 cheese stick

- Place into the breadcrumbs and press firmly to cover completely.

The breast is cooked when it registers 165° to 170° F on an instant-read thermometer.
Trying this product for the first time to make oven breaded chicken!
We think you’ll love them! They were created by a Sicilian Italian who also uses them 3 to 4 times a week! We’d love to hear how your breaded chicken turned out!
